the treaty between israel and egypt. there's a lot in it for egypt. mr. morsi has to be a pragmatist. he knows he can't alienate the united states. he may want to impose a measure of islamism. >> thanks so much for enlightening us. we appreciate it. >> thank you. >>> we'll take a quick break and be back with much more in the newsroom. meet the 5-passenger ford c-max hybrid. when you're carrying a lot of weight, c-max has a nice little trait, you see, c-max helps you load your freight, with its foot-activated lift gate. but that's not all you'll see, cause c-max also beats prius v, with better mpg. say hi to the all-new 47 combined mpg c-max hybrid. >>> 30 minutes past the hour. good morning, i'm carol costello. former cia director david petraeus testifying on capitol hill about the deadly attacks in benghazi, talking about what he knew and when. the firestorm over benghazi, it just keeps getting more splo explosive. here are members of the house foreign affairs committee in a briefing on the attacks yesterday. >> what is clear is that this administration, including the president himself,
point out, there's been a 33-year-old peace pact with the israelis and with egypt perhaps mr. morsi will be loathe to push the eswriptian military any way to break that at all, and, of course, on top of that president morsi has to bear in mind significant aid packages from the west and from the imf, which he needs badly so his country's heavily damaged economy can begin to recover. many issues, he certainly faces there, but, of course, he must tread that fine line between the international role egypt must maintain and the stability and, of course, keeping popular opinion inside egypt satisfied. many expecting egypt to perhaps come to a greater level of assistance for hamas at this point, suzanne. >> just minutes ago we saw the authority, the president of mahmoud abbas saying they are denying palestinians the right to establish an independent state, taking a really hard line there. you also say the israeli military putting out this statement an hour ago saying they're going to operate so the mission has been complete and that hamas has now turned the gaza strip into a base for the ir
's a vacuum that has to be filled. the u.s. has to step up and provide leadership. president morsi in cairo called mr. jabari, the terrorist who was killed, a martyr. the muslim brotherhood does have a close relationship with hamas. iran has given hundreds of millions of dollars to hamas in recent months. so the region is in turmoil. the u.s. should step up firm for our ally, make clear where we are, try to get turkey and egypt -- both of whom have been sympathetic to hamas -- to stand down. >> that's not happening. john, u.s. foreign policy in the middle east, maybe elsewhere, but in the middle east right now in the wake of libya and benghazi, we are at low ebb, john, in the eyes i dare say of middle eastern countries and in the eyes of european countries and maybe in the eyes of asian countries. our cia director is gone. there's some kind of sex scandal going on. they all testified today on benghazi. no one knows what came out of that. my point is this, if president obama is asking the president of egypt who has sympathies with all these terrorists and guerrillas, where's the clear statem
by mr. abbas. the players and devices we've used in the past are difficult to use. >> what sort of political pressure, though, is morsi feeling? they have an agreement with israel. it is a relatively new government, a new construct. he's being tested essentially. hit basically from both sides. what are those dynamics like? those domestic politics for the egyptians? >> what is new now is the political leadership of egypt has a direct and personal involvement with one party, not the palestinian authority, not israel, but the hamas movement in gaza. so there is a natural affinity as stated by the prime minister and they are essentially on hamas' side ideologically. on the other hand, the president of egypt has made clear he doesn't want to throw over the israel/egypt peace agreement. how far can he go in supporting hamas without getting rid of that agreement or undermining it in a fundamental way? i expect him to go quite far. >> do you think the election affected the timing of this. did hamas step up its attacks to test the obama administration? did netanyahu act waiting for romne
